you're eight months old, ford boy!

My little Ford boy, you are eight months old!

Is it possible than in four months, you'll be one? I cannot believe it.

Here's some things about you at eight months...

You weigh a little over 19 pounds. We didn't have to visit the doctor this month, but I had to take you in for a cold last week, and they weighed you. You are gaining weight beautifully now, which is such a blessing. I never thought I'd get my skinny, tiny little guy to eat, but you do and you are growing perfectly!

You take about 5- 5 oz. bottles a day. You usually wake up around 7:30 a.m. and you are ready to go back in your crib for a nap two hours after you wake up. You'll usually sleep for 1.5-2 hours. You'll wake up, play and eat again then go back down for an afternoon nap around 2:00-2:30 (whenever I lay Watts down for her nap). You usually sleep for 1.5-2.5 hours, then you are awake until bath time at 7:00 and bedtime at 7:30. You sleep through the night for usually 12 hours. Your momma thanks you for that!

You eat two baby food meals per day. I usually give you 1-2 jars depending on how hungry you are. And you love everything-- squash, carrots, green beans, bananas, pears, apples, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, EVERYTHING! I'm so thankful for a good eater and a baby who literally will eat anything I put in his mouth. I also usually give you Cheerios or puffs for a snack if I think you have a little hankering. :)

You ADORE your big sister, but she won't give you the time a day. In fact, she is usually pretty rough with you, but occasionally, she will love on you and give you hugs. She will call you "Faaaa," and "Little Buddy" but she tends to do her own thing most of the time. She doesn't like for you to cry, and if you are crying, she will come to me and say, "Faaaa trying'!" until I come and pick you up. She also likes to feed you Cheerios if she's in the mood. Ha!

Ford, you are wearing 9 months clothes and some 12 months clothes. You are a pretty long fella, and you have the biggest, sweetest legs ever. You wear a size 3 shoe. You love to give your momma kisses, and you love to talk and yell. You won't be overshadowed by your big sister, that's for sure.

You don't crawl just yet, but you can pull yourself on your belly just about anywhere you want to go. You are pretty much mobile, but you prefer to be held and cuddled.

You still only have two bottom teeth, but I think you are teething, so I'm looking for new teeth any day now.

You are still so smiley and so, so happy. You are almost always go with the flow and so content. You love to sit up and play and be talked to. I took you in one of my friend's stores in Birmingham the other day, and when she talked to you, you just turned your head to the side and grinned, grinned, grinned! You are such a little flirt, and the women love you!

Sweet Ford boy, you're momma is crazy about you. People always told me that little boys love their mommas, but I never really understood what that meant until you came along. It's true. Little boys love. their. mommas. And I love you something fierce, little guy. I sure do adore you.

Happy eight months, little boy. I love you, sweet Wint.
